Tonight's selection includes one of the greatest Irish movies ever made.

Friday! Friday! Gotta get down (to watching some movies) on Friday!

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - MTV - 7.55pm

The third one. The one where the vampires and werewolves make friends so they can fight other, more evil vampires.

Now You See Me - E4 - 9pm

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco are a group of magicians who are using their tricks to cover their tracks as they stage a series of elaborate robberies. Mark Ruffalo is the cop on their tale. On a normal night, this would be the best cast you'd see, but tonight is not a normal night...

Cop Land - ITV4 - 9pm

Sly Stallone dipped his toe back in Serious Acting with this one, a thriller about a good cop surrounded by crooked ones. Supporting cast includes Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Harvey Keitel, and Robert Patrick. This is the best movie on tonight.

Stargate - FilmFour - 9pm

Before he made Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, this director gave us a bonkers space travel movie with Kurt Russell chasing after aliens who may or may not have influenced the history of mankind.

John Wick - Virgin Media One - 9pm

Some bad guys killed Keanu Reeves' dog, so he is going to kill all of the bad guys. That is all you need to know.

The Butcher Boy - RTE Two - 9.30pm

Stephen Rea, Brendan Gleeson and Sinead O'Connor (as the Virgin Mary!) star in this super dark comedy from director Neil Jordan (Michael Collins), telling the story of a 12-year-old boy who retreats into a violent fantasy world to escape the reality of his dysfunctional family.

2 Guns - FilmFour - 11.20pm

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star as two undercover agents who don't realise the other is also an undercover agent, but they're forced to work together when they both get blamed for a drug deal gone wrong. A very decent action comedy.

Old School - BBC One - 11.45pm

Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson, and Will Ferrell decide to start a fraternity to get away from their depressing grown up lives and relive their youthful antics. A very, very funny movie.
